Queanbeyan based masters swimming club, Molonglo Water Dragons are swimming for a good cause this weekend in the Canberra 24 hour MS Megaswim at the Australian Institute of Sport Aquatic Centre.
The team named the Molonglo Masters and Apprentices has so far raised nearly $4000 of the more than $110,000 that has currently been raised for the Multiple Schlerosis ‘Go for Gold’ scholarship program. The event started at midday Saturday and will conclude on Midday Sunday and some Tuggeranong Masters Swimmers have joined forces with their fellow club to help out.
The 24 Hour Mega Swim event raises funds for MS Australia’s ‘Go for Gold’ Scholarship program. ‘Go for Gold’ scholarships are awarded to people living with Multiple Sclerosis covering a broad range of categories including education, travel, sport, music, the Arts and employment.
MS Australia aims to minimise the impact of multiple sclerosis on all individuals affected by the disease, their families, carers and the community by offering a wide range of assistance, services and equipment. MS Australia’s goal is to assist everyone affected by MS to live life to their full potential and secure the care and support they need, until we ultimately find a cure.
